to six years. >> reporter: the obama administration does plan to invest one billion dollars toward helping states reform their own higher education systems with a focus on value. >> for the most part, states are enrolling, they're paying institutions based on enrollments rather than outcomes. so how many students do you have in seats. how many butts in seats do you have. as opposed to, how are you doing with those students? and one of the things that this program that has been proposed would be to have states think more creatively about their dollars. which could also help them save money. as it is, as it was in the depth of the equity days, very high short positions on individual stocks, this is like tinder, you need a spark, you need a catalyst, and usually that becomes known after the fact rather than before. >> right. >> but i think over six or seven month period like the options i am looking at, we have a chance, number one, for equity side, the equity side to rally sharply, hence the spy calls and the bond, and not the inverse trade, necessarily but the matching trade, the pa

morning, everyone. i'm lynn berry. and after weeks of controversy over the obama administration's handling of the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi, the woman in the middle of it all will go face to face with her toughest critics this morning. u.n. ambassador susan rice is heading to capitol hill for a closed door meeting with senators john mccain, lindsey graham and kelly ayotte. they were infuriated after rice called the assault that killed ambassador chris stevens and three other americans spontaneous and linked to a protest over a youtube video. she will be joined by acting cia director mike morell. the meeting could serve as a real test of whether rice will still be in for a fight over her potential nomination as secretary of state. >>> elsewhere on capitol hill today, it's back to the bargaining table for lawmakers facing a year-end fiscal cliff. yesterday the white house took a hard line insisting tax rates have to rise on the rich and warning that anymore delay on the deal could ruin consumer confidence and hurt holiday retail sales. nbc's tracie potts joins us from washington with
, the obama administration points out the typical american household will pay $2,200 in additional taxes next year, which could hurt consumer spending by $200 billion in 2013 and threaten christmas shopping this season. house speaker john boehner and a few other key republicans appear willing to consider tax hikes. billionaire warren buffett chimes in that tax hikes won't stop the wealthy from investing. in our cover story, the woman who led the securities and exchange commission after the 2008 financial crisis is stepping down. mary schapiro took over an agency under fire for ignoring repeated warnings about the bernie madoff ponzi scheme. in 2008, the regulatory sec was itself under scrutiny, critized for failing to anticipate the lehman brothers bankruptcy, which sent financial markets reeling, and also missing the warning signs of bernie madoff's multi-billion dollar ponzi scheme. "before she got there, they almost needed someone to come in and confess." mary schapiro, who president obama said will be replaced by commissioner elisse walter, overhauled sec enforcement and made it more proa
the intelligence community gave her were incorrect and that at no time did she or anyone in the obama administration intend to mislead the american people. the white house worked to reinforce that tuesday. >> ambassador rice has no responsibility for collecting, analyzing and providing intelligence. >> reporter: acting cia director michael morrell joined rice's capitol hill meeting to help her field questions. danielle nottingham cbs 5. >>> president obama is making a public case this week for his approach to avert the "fiscal cliff." he is meeting today and tomorrow with small business owners and middle class families and he will visit a small business in pennsylvania on friday. negotiations with republicans continue behind closed doors. a democratic senator says his side is willing to discuss reform of medicare and medicaid. >> the math just doesn't work anymore. not because the programs are bad but because thank goodness we're living longer. >> republicans are signalling they're open to compromise but so far, they still oppose the president's idea to raise taxes on the wealthy. ins
on an oil rig in the gulf of mexico released one of the worst oil spills in u.s. history. the obama administration announced is putting a temporary stop on new federal contracts with bp. for more on the financial impact, i spoke with adam brooks. and what does this actually need for bp? >> it means they still have not been forgiven for the explosion in the deep water rights in that killed 11 people and pumped millions of gallons of oil into the gulf of mexico in 2010. it means that in addition to $4.5 billion in fines that they have agreed to pay, a leading criminal charges, bp will now not -- pleading guilty to criminal charges, bp will now not in -- get any new business in the u.s. >> how much business does vp actually have with the u.s. government at the moment? >> most people point to its contract that it has today, $1.4 billion in fuel that it sold to the u.s. last year. bp employs 23,000 people here and has billions of dollars in investments. it was hinting that it was not in america's interest to allow bp's business here to go under. another important thing, they have new dri
, will it be a more aggressive obama administration or he will be friendlier towards wall street? >> i do not think, one of the big decisions will be who they pick for treasury secretary. i do not think there will be any color you know, get even with wall street. i think the president -- one of the earlier commentators said he is looking down the road for his legacy. in a good sense. i just think it will be different than the way bush and paulson dealt with it and even the way geithner dealt with it. connell: let me end with this, you ruled out jamie diving. who do you think he will pick? >> i do not know. it could be jack lu. there are lots of different people. i think they want to work with wall street. i think they realized that is an important piece of dealing with the fact we are still in this incredible financial crisis. connell: as always, thank you for coming on. >> thank you, connell. dagen: yale professor, bob shiller is standing by. six straight month of gains. is a recovery in? connell: companies and investors trying to beat the tax man. get it in now and we will tell you what is going
that the sanctions that the u.n. hats imposed on iran and the united states and obama administration touts so often. they have had no impact at all on the iranian nuclear program. that is the head of the agency. we're really in a position of diminished power and diminished ability to influence the outcome of events. >> here is what i am confused. i remember hearing that democratic nations are peaceful, hamas democratically elected in 2006, morsi government was just elected and they become more anti-american, more dangerous to israel, more anti-western. what went wrong with our understanding of democracy here? >> i think it was much too limited. democracy is a culture. it's a way of life. it's not just simply holding an election and counting votes. it takes a long time to get it in place. it's no knock on any particular region or religion to say that. people have recognized it as far back as jon stewart, in europe they didn't cover themselves in glory in the last century. in russia having passed out of authoritarianism may be going back into it. so the fact that a group can gel elected in the and th
, the obama administration is very slow to nominate judges to the lower court. and the senate has been a drastically obstructionist in a way that is really -- there have always been in fights fights over the federal court of appeals but this is lacking nominee to the trial court and i think with an eye towards sort of taking sure there's not a bench of judges on the lower courts for possible supreme court nominees. there is kind of the new paradigm. we used to be, and i used to give talks about this, that as long as a president stays in the sort of boundaries of existing political consensus and nominate somebody within those boundaries and tries to push the envelope and achieves by supreme court nomination something that could be achieved through the political process, that president wasn't safe territory so you think of for instance built in 10's two nominees, ruth bader ginsburg and stephen breyer. almost no controversy because bill clinton could have gone far to the left if he had chosen. there was certainly potential nominees who were to the left of ginsburg and breyer but he went
. >>> this afternoon the obama administration weighed-in on the situation in egypt raising a number of concerns. let's go to cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: joe, one of those concerns is about too much power in the hands of one person. we look back a few months ago it was unclear whether egypt was an ally of the u.s. now a senior administration official saying a relationship of trust has developed between president obama and president morsi. but as we know in any relationship things can get complicated. at the white house, a sense of calm kicking off the holiday season with the arrival of a 19-foot christmas tree. >> it is perfect. it's exactly what we needed. >> reporter: while the president headed to the golf course at joint base andrews. but the white house is closely watching developments in egypt. protests, violent at times and anger over what some see as president morsi's power grab, as declarations preventing any court from overturning his decisions. >> ilt appears the timing is curious. he's gotten this bump particularly for his role in mediating the cease-fire f

another continuing resolution used to fund the governments, the obama administration had not passed a budget was coming up. the republicans, the republican leaders believe it was an easy vote, and their own members voted against it. and the appropriations committee , which designs these continuing resolutions and all other spending bills was serious and they insisted on meeting with the. they said, you need to punish these members. we are the ones being punished. were doing everything you want us to do, cutting spending, and these guys still one vote for it. any to fall in line. and he said family can't do that anymore. it will make mars of the. >> so they don't feel like they're in a position to lead on matters of the debt ceiling or anything else. >> in fact, i think it is interesting. this fall but has been devoted to a the debt ceiling. specifically, you know, long magazine stories to the so-called grand bargain between the speaker and obama that fell apart. from my standpoint all of that is when and sales, with all due respect to the authors of those stories and books because t
regarding egypt. >> reporter: so far the obama administration is not calling out mohamed morsi directly. president obama spoke to mohamed morsi on wednesday to thank him for his personal leadership and handling the cease-fire and days later the state department said in a statement, the current constitutional vacuum in egypt can only be resolved by the adoption of a constitution that includes checks and balances and respects fundamental freedoms and individual rights and the rule of law, consistent with egypt's international commitment. it goes on to say, quote, we call for all egyptians to resolve their differences over these important issues, piece fully, and, through democratic dialogue. but, no mention, harris, of mohamed morsi by name. >> harris: molly henneberg, thanks, molly. we move on to hollywood and the world. actor larry hagman was so good at being bad. he has passed away, and people are laying flowers at his star at the hollywood walk of fame. he died yesterday in dallas, again working as the character that maids him famous the world over, best known for his role as is the s
asked about u.s. pressure but also the u.s. playing a greater role. if the obama administration says let's let them settle it themself but they said we'll play a more aggressive role. that's the challenge for the obama administration in the second term where as in the first term they wanted a light footprint. >> there's benghazi. the president, one aspect -- we talked about the investigation. the president is expected to announce a number of top appointments, including cabinet positions in the coming days, conceivably some as soon as this week and one of the questions is, and you see the two of them there, do you think he will take on this fight and name susan rice to be -- secretary of state and do you think the senate will confirm him. >> president obama has confided in me on his secretary of state. i rather think he'll appoint susan rice. i'm not a fab of -- fan of hers but i think she'll be confirmed. john kerry might be a worse secretary of state so maybe one goes ahead and lets him have the secretary of state of wants. other maybe one votes against it as senators say she wasn't for
by the obama administration for brokering a ceasefire in gaza, and now the white house is silent on the more -- coupe. middle east expert professor hoover institute senior fellow "wall street journal" as columnist among our guests her tonight. we begin ith the president's broad based strategy to conduct our right class warfare aainst the republican party on the issue of taxes and the fiscal cliff. the white house today released a report from the ouncil of economic advisers. that report claims that if republican lawmakers don't accept the president's fiscal proposals they would be responsible for destroying christmas for the nation's retail sector. the national retail federation is forecasting that holiday sales will grow. if congress does not act on the president's plan t extend tax cuts for the middle-class and jobs in our ecoomy at the most important time of the year for retail stores. as the president uses similar scare tactics to bully republicans into a deal press secretary jay carney today made clear where the president himself simply refuses to compromise. >> there are issues that nee
, who was just a patsy for the obama administration in this campaign. >> sean: go ahead. >> again, you can argue the merits of her politics, but what she was -- >> sean: why do you keep avoiding the merits of it? >> i'll deal with it head on, but the idea is she's representing voices in the united states. for her, she's talking about students. for some women, pregnancy is life or death, and -- >> sean: are you willing to sacrifice what penny is bringing up here, something called religious freedom? are you willing to force catholic institutions to go against their own religious teaching and fund -- >> well -- >> sean: excuse me. -- and sunday something that's the antithesis of what their religion is teaching them? >> as a catholic woman, i can say what they're representing in terms of policy is actually a separation of church and state. >> sean: i didn't ask you that. the catholic position on contraception is well known. that's their teach. you you don't have to follow it, but that's their teaching. do you want the government to contradict or force or mandate that they go against their
on the libya mess. a new allegation that the obama administration still cannot get its story straight after so much time, even as recently as this morning. ironically, this latest charge flows directly out of an attempt at damage control. u.n. ambassador susan rice's trip to capitol hill, she and the acting cia director, michael morell, meeting with republican senators john mccain, kelly ayotte and lindsay graham, who were not pleased with what they heard. >> it is clear that the information she gave the american people was incorrect when she said it was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. it was not, and there was compelling evidence at the time that that was certainly not the case, including statements by libyans as well as other americans who are fully aware that people don't bring mortars and rocket-propelled grenades to spontaneous demonstrations. >> in a statement after the meeting, ambassador rice said that neither she nor anyone in the administration intended to mislead the american people. but the breaking news concerns the part in her sunday talk show statements
. romney is offered any kind of official position in an obama administration. the opportune word there, rev, is he may have some ideas. i think he is aware of the ideas that mr. romney has. even if you think about the business accumen and experiences, those are not the kind of business practices that we need in this kind of economic environment. the president is aware of what needs to happen going forward. and the gesture towards bipartisanship again is what is most important in this particular meeting. i don't think too much substantive will come out in terms of mr. romney having some kind of a position or being able to see his ideas about how to move forward in the economy into an obama administration's plan for the future of america. >> well, douglas brinkley, james peterson, thank you for your time tonight. i think it's a healthy thing. i'm very firm and clear on my positions but i also think it's very important until a divided country that we show none of it is personal and that the american people are far more important than any of our partisan views. that's why it was good the presid
know that the obama administration over the course of the term has imposed 400 regulations that impose more than $100 million of costs annually on small businesses. the small business administration has said that there are so many regulatory burdens on small business that it cost them $10,000 per employee. those are the kinds of things that we want to stop right now so we can see more startup and jobs created. >> is one thing to hope for freezing regulations. but i guess we had hoped for "a-team" canaday. if you don't know these regulations, you could bin big trouble. t's say that you stop adding to the regulations. that alone has prompted the obama administration say, well, republicans don't want to otect us. how are you going to answer the predictable criticism that you're not looking out for folks, you are looking out for business interests? >> well, we are. we are saying in health emergency, of course. any sensible policymaker would say you have to be able to address those. but right now, the pendulum has swung so far that it's very difficult to even conceive starting up your busin
and administration would john bolton. we have seen it in a couple of cases in the obama administration where nominee for a high government post was held up for a long time. it all depends in the end on whether kelly ayotte gets any allies from her fellow republicans on this, because the way you could overcome her individual opposition is to get about five republicans that the democrats would need to break any filibuster that she might muster. i suspect, based on what i've seen of the evidence, what she was referring to in the statement, that it probably will not be a big problem for susan rice nonalignment. frankly, ayotte is way out on a limb on this. it is interesting that john mccain and lindsey graham, much more experienced senators, continue their opposition. but ayotte says she will hold up any nominee. host: what to you mean that she's way out there? guest: there's no one else making statements that there are so many unanswered questions that this is a sort of national scandal that must be resolved before we can even have a secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. i think that unless th
in the senate so much will be the problem for the obama administration, but republicans in the house of representatives, especially those from the tea party movement and others will be a serious problem. >> what was an important group of republicans during the debt ceiling debate while this election has changed the arithmet arithmet arithmetic, republicans in the house will be key to this negotiation. the two men that need to hammer out this deal, just like it was over the summer, is still president obama and spooeseaker boehner. >> i don't think there's any doubt the president will have his democratic base on board. the question is, will boehner have his republican base on board? will he be able to bring those in? >> those talks continue. >> we'll find out. >>> both congress and the white house certainly under increased intense pressure right now to make a deal. our new poll shows voters are getting rather impatient. let's bring in our chief political analyst, gloria borger, who's also working this. new poll numbers. who's going to get the most blame if there's no deal? >> let's sta
the new egyptian pharaoh. he's concerned and says the obama administration, particularly president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton have to be much tougher than they've been. they've been almost silent so far, and come out strongly this week in condemning morsi's power grab and in effect threaten them with u.s. military aid, economic aid. a debt forgiveness deal. so there's a lot of leverage and we have to start using it. >> he's also as many others are keeping a close eye on the benghazi investigation. he would in favor of a consolidated investigation into what happened. >> what he basically says is you have senate intelligence and homeland security and senate armed services and duplication of those on the house side. he said what we need a one super investigation, one super committee, and he and lindsey graham compared it to a watergate style committee. we had the top republican on senate intelligence, and they said we don't need that, we can do it with the standing economist. i'm not sure 0 there's a critical mass from democrats ane the creation of a special committee. i t
that the obama administration decimated al qaeda. that's something that rubs these republican senators the wrong way. i will tell you what she told them, i'm told, inside the classified briefing this morning, what she meant was it was the core of al qaeda, that's what the obama administration has decimated. but these republican senators think she's lef the impression it's al qaeda in general. last thing i will tell you i was told she did say to the republican senators behind closed doors she regrets saying what she said because she knows it was simply not right. >> where does this go from here? obviously investigating intelligence officials as well, i imagine? >> yes. as i said, the acting director of the cia also in this room. and senators, republicans and democrats, are not thrilled with the information that they got publicly or privately. but the -- what goes on from here more meetings. she's back here, we believe, this afternoon, tomorrow she has a meeting with one senator, bob corker of tennessee, probably others. she's going to make the rounds and she's going to keep trying to persuade sen

she and the obama administration misled the american public about the deadly attack on americans in libya. >>> the election was only three weeks ago, but president obama's about to shift back into campaign mode. and we're learning exclusive new details about the personal and professional life of the woman at the center of the scandal that forced the resignation of cia director david petraeus. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the obama administration's latest attempt to explain the misleading information given out in the days after the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans including the u.s. ambassador to libya died in what we now know was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's b
's letter rather interesting. he implied that the obama administration is not assisting congress in the libya investigation. have they been stonewalling in any way? what do you think? >> no, i don't think they've been stonewalling at all. look, john mccain is a bitter man who's never gotten over 2008 and attacks the president on almost anything. and lindsey graham is his mini me. what's going on here is that they had a theory, a conspiracy theory about libya. mitt romney tried to elaborate it in the second debate. he got slapped down. couldn't even talk about it in the third debate. the more we learn about this, the more we learn that this was a very standard procedure in terms of reaction. you put out there what you can put out there. you don't put out there things that would reveal sources and methods of intelligence or minimize the chances that you would catch someone. one of the things that's most disturbing about this, ed, once again, you have the republicans going after an african-american. we saw it with eric holder, we're seeing it with susan rice. it's the same old polit
john mccain and lindsey graham have been accusing the obama administration of changing susan rice's talking points, following the benghazi incident. they claim links to al qaeda were left out for political purposes. but on tuesday, their conspiracy theory was blown out of the water. the spokeswoman for the director of national intelligence told cnn the white house wasn't involved in removing the information on al qaeda. he said the intelligence community made the changes. in responding to this report, mccain admitted that he was wrong, but still took a shot at the white house. he said intelligence officials, quote, told us they did not know who made the changes. now we have to read the answers to our questions in the media. this latest episode is another reason why many of us are so suspicious of actions of this administration when it comes to the benghazi attack. meanwhile, his sidekick, lindsey graham, is going into full attack mode. senator graham wrote a letter to president obama on tuesday, saying that he's concerned. many questions remain unanswered on the benghazi attacks.
that people within the obama administration as well as the campaign were legitimately fearful of huntsman early on. the fact that jon huntsman wasn't able to get a word in edgewise in talking about foreign policy though he was the only primary candidate that had any foreign policy experience told you how misguided the republican party was. now they're able to look back and hopefully have jon huntsman or someone like him be part of the conversation four years from now because i do like jon huntsman a lot. >> thank you both for joining me. we'll see what happens. less than four years away till the next presidential election. thank you both for joining us. >>> 'tis the season is travel. we'll show you ho you the nation's airports and roadways are faring today and what it may mean for the hustle and bustle closer to christmas. >>> i'm dr. sanjay gupta. this week on "the next list" meet max little, a math wiz and innovator with a surprising goal. >> my name's max little. i'm aiming to screen the population for parkinson's disease. >> max little has a bold idea. what if doctors could detect par
that -- at the top. you would think that the obama administration would have bought their own tweet. >> brown: howie, what is the administration asking its supporters to do through this tash tag? i mean, is it just to get the word out or is there something more explicit? >> well, it's all about mobilizing public opinion which is easier to do when n a campaign when off clear choice-- barack obama or mitt romney. with the romney campaign having evaporated the democrats have an advantage on this. so obama for america, the digital group that was created to help get president obama elected to a second term has sent out an e-mail with graphics to its supporters on millions of people oner, the mail list urging them to get involved on the president's proposals and to share some of this information with their friends. >> brown: we're taking a look at that now. so that's, lauren, part of this -- this is what you're talking about, the permanent campaign. >> it just never stops. they're saying share this with your friends. make a youtube video, post it on your facebook and your e-mail. the question really comes
of the palestinian people in rama la, i don't think you will see the obama administration open up some kind of relationship with hamas unless hamas renowns violations and, violence and terrorism. >> i don't think you can expect, that is not going to happen. >> why not? >> well for one thing i becauset is seen as resistance occupation, they continue their occupation and the palestinians have to stand quietly well, i think the palestinians would be well-advised to renowns violence. >> hamas chart search not important, if they say we are willing to negotiate that should be enough you should see what the deal is and let them put it to a palestinian -- >> rose: is hosni prepared to negotiate through the palestinian party. >> they say yes, they are not allowed to form a unity government but that is not wanted in washington. >> rose: because of the arab spring and because of iran and because of leaving damascus and all kind of things so hamas, whatever happens here, has come out a better place within the palestinian community, dennis? >> well, there certainly is a different place because there is
about ambassador susan rice's next possible role in the obama administration includes major political players. it could impact the future of some of our most well-known players. we have a panel. hello, you guys. good to see you both. >> good morning. >> david, listen to susan rice answer a question about john mccain, let's play that. >> i have great respect for senator mccain and his service to our country, i always have and i always will. i do think that some of the statements he's made about me have been unfounded but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. >> a very gracious statement there considering the fire she's come under. how far do you think senator mccain and senator lindsey graham are going to take this fight if she is nominated to replace hillary clinton. >> well, no. i mean, there's a clear question that's at stake. she was in a position of turning for t interpreting for the american public a major foreign affairs event. there are a lot of questions around that and what senator mccain and graham are focusing on i
. the obama administration has said, you know what? let people settle this for themselves and instead the u.s. might way, we'll help you and control those ports to make sure weapons aren't being smuggled in. we will play a more aggressive role. that is the challenge for the obama administration, in the second term. whereas the first term i think they wanted a light footprint. >> chris: then there is benghazi. the president and -- let's talk about one aspect of this. we talked about the investigation for a long time. the president is expected to announce a number of top appointments, including cabinet positions in the coming days, conceivably some, it is report, as soon as this week, and, one of the questions is, and you see the two of them there, do you think he will take on this fight, and name susan rice to be secretary of state, bill, and if he were to do so do you think the senate will confirm her? >> president obama hasn't confided in me, who the secretary of state appointment is, i know that is a shock, i rather think he'll appoint her and i think, i'm not a huge fan of hers but i thi
and i find it unbelievable that the obama administration would even propose writing a rule book because they've continued more of the bush policies than they thought they would. >> yeah. >> absolutely. i don't know where they get off thinking they're the ones to have the moral high ground. >> the idea that they're pushing here, though, the idea behind this rule book was basically i what crystal was saying. we're comfortable making these decisions ourselves, makes these arbitrary and objective decisions ourselves. the bigger problem that i think we're ignoring here is that this isn't written anywhere that the president has this power. this is authority that bush asserted. this is authority that obama has asserted and i think there's legitimate grounds for debate of how much power the president has to order it. there's ledge migitimaclegitima. the strategy was to get the local population on our side. well, now you're dropping all these bombs. do you have significant civilian deaths. there's dispute how many there actually are. part of the problem is there's an accounts issue where we say
interviews saying that the obama administration has decimated al qaeda. what senator ayotte and other senators have said is that was misleading because she knew in a classified way that al qaeda might have been behind it. so that is what one -- two of the reasons why at least senator ayotte said that she is troubled. and she said that she is still not ready to say that she will vote for her. not only that, but she's still -- she still has a threat to block her nomination if susan rice is nominated. >> and is that the end of it, or are there future meetings? is there going to be more consultation, or is that that? >> reporter: no, that is not that. that is the beginning of this for sure. we understand that the ambassador is likely to be back later today for more meetings. ted barrett heard from the republican from tennessee that he has a meeting with susan rice tomorrow. again, just like today's meeting. that was at the request of susan rice. she is definitely making the rounds. she's trying to explain herself. but at least with these three republican senators this morning who were --

. a discussion of u.s. energy efforts and the energy policy of the obama administration in the next four years. >> we want to welcome back to our table, president and c.e.o. of the american petroleum institute. let's go back to campaign 2012. the american petroleum institute spent about $868,000 on the 2012 campaign cycle. total contributions, $650,000. contributions to candidates around $220,000. given that you spent a lot on republican governor mitt romney's bid spent more towards republicans, how will this impact your ability to communicate with the white house and the congress? what do you think your relationship will be like? guest: we ran a vote for energy campaign, which was focused on elevating energy to be a top draw issue. we believe was highly successful. both candidates were both giving a full endorsement of oil and natural gas as a key form of energy here in the united states to create jobs and help with our economic recovery. overall, the dollars we spent were not partisan in nature. we weren't supporting one candidate over the other, our candidate was energy and focused on eleva
? as you may well know, the obama administration is trying to get all of those people who voted for the president to come on board and say this is what we want and to press congress to make a deal but it is sort of hard to figure out what is fair. >> exactly. i said to my staff last week we need a big charge that shows the options and how much money is delivered or caused by each step we might take. i think for the most americans they have to know that no matter what we do, taxes are not going to go up on 98%, those people making less than $250,000 a year. where we go above that, i think our side is very, very necessity gloeshable. if there is a number that makes more sense, a half a million dollars to raise the marginal rate, a million dollars, we can look at that and we would be willing to do that and so far the republicans have not been willing to budget one inch on rates and again this is all a matter of semantics. it is not dollars so they ought to be willing to put everything on the table on the revenue side. >> what they might say is and let me get your answer. you said w
the united states and the obama administration and obstacles in creating a genuine palestinian peace process. we will take all of that up tonight with admiral james lyons. congressman louie gohmert of texas will also be here fred also, president obama has no plan to announce tax cuts and spending cuts. why they don't add up to anything meaningful. lou: the testimony before congress has been surveyed. congressman mike rogers. everyone else has testified that they didn't. do you agree? >> i do agree. and the deputies committee, i'm sure the white house representatives of national security from the national security agency council had their orders. lou: general david petraeus says for his part, one of the confusing things -- confusion between the testimony he gave to congress three days after september 11 and what he said over the past few days in congress, it represents what happens when you try to avoid tipping off terrorists. do you buy that? >> according to congressman king, it indicates that betray d petraeus deadlock. lou: is appropriate for a military man to take upon himself or herself
. happening now, new troubles for some top members of the obama administration. more republicans senators say they're troubled by what the united nations ambassador susan rice is telling them. and now the acting cia director has some serious problems as well. president obama pulls out all the stops to keep middle class taxes low, but will congress go along with higher taxes for the rich? plus, a long secret u.s. plan, get this, to explode an atomic bomb on the moon. what were they thinking? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> today we may be at the tipping point for one of the most important decisions president obama needs to make as he begins his second term. on capitol hill republicans including moderate republicans are sending the president a clear warning, don't nominate susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice is the current u.s. ambassador to the united nations. she spent a second day meeting with senators trying to explain some of her inaccurate comments she made after the september 11th terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, liby
they had going into this. everything that george bush did the obama administration said we'll do the opposite. if george bush led from the front we'll lead from behind. george bush went in on the ground from iraq, we'll go in from the air in libya. george bush used contractors to provide security. we use the libyan guys to provide security in libya. the problem was the libyans weren't up to the job. the administration looked at all these countries. they helped topple dictators, now they were dictators but pro-american dictators and kept peace with israel in place 40 years. now what are you seeing? country after country in chaos or electing anti-american, islamist muslim brotherhood leaders. bill: what you're arguing they took all the decisions and flipped them on their head 180 degree turn. >> yeah. bill: how is that working out. >> not very well but they have gotten away with it so far. you and fox news have been carrying out the call but no other mainstream media is paying attending. they didn't pay attention until it became a sex scandal with david petraeus and everybody paid
in an knee duncan tomorrow. maybe he'll disagree. my my view, the obama administration has made the key priority clear. republicans in the same place. they are contemplating if they are antifederal wing neater are too extreme. we'll see if the administration proposes new reform. i would look for a shift to implement tight as i mentioned every oversight of things like raising the top, the waiver at the department granted, i understand the department is looking to release new rules on teacher preparation accountability. i think a much needed evaluator there regardless what those rules are, it seems to me this area is right for cooperation between senator right and the senator left i also know that secretary duncan has said a few times he wishes he has done more on childhood education. that means bite -- fighting on two fronts. choosing policy winds and building the infrastructure to support them. recognizing new e -- we have to do both the things to get the policy right but build the organization. to get that policy first implemented and then sustained over the long-term. the ground is sh
him. you have heard that the obama administration has pointed out that it has given cooperation. and i agree, where i would disagree is that i think hamas has shown that not withstanding sanctions it has increased it's a built to inflict pain on israel. this started because of the firing of the rockets and over the course of the last week we have seen rockets landing aimed at jerusalem and i think that hamas has more power than we might have expected. >> the interesting question will be whether hamas gains from this politically. they have been able to survive and they have these pin prick attacks and these unguided missiles have been very ineffective. they don't kill people and don't disrupt israel in a meaningful sense. the question is are they more popular on the street. there is evidence that they are unpopular with the palestinian people. they have stuck with them and partly because of the pressure, they don't want to oust hamas because that would be doing what the israelis want. hamas is not popular. >> you have been saying that for several nights that they are not all that popula
states attorney and it is my incredible honor to represent the president, the obama administration here in the northern district of california. welcome to the stop bullying summit. i'm a federal prosecutor so it may seem odd that here we are talking about bullying and we asked all of you to be here and i want to explain the origin of that and why this happened. you people, everybody in this room, has been involved in this issue and is doing incredible work on this issue and we were so honored to be a part of it and to meet with all of you and to speak with you about it. the origin is that as the united states attorney, the administration wants me, wants all the united states attorneys, to go out into the community. it's actually a very different role for the united states attorney is envisioned by this administration. this administration, the president, attorney general holder, they want the u.s. attorneys to go out into the attorney to talk to the communities in our district to understand what the issues are and challenges are and to do what we can to help, to convene meetings, to d
to call it gets pardoned second. it seems to me the obama administration is encouraging bullying. >> absolutely. this is part of our obsession with celebrity. just because he is popular he gets to live a little longer. actually we should do that with people. it is like high school. >> it is like "the voice." it is like a turkey beauty pageant. >> i wonder if they can sing. >> according to the white house blog, each of the two birds had the distinct personality -- i will read what they say. he is mown for the musical stylings of carly simon. he loves to anybody bell on corn and enjoys any music with a fiddle. which one of these two should die? probably the carly simon. >> i think the first is a description of vice president biden. i am not sure. i don't think either should die. again i am for animal rights. >> if these noise book updates were real, here is what both would say. please for the love of god kill me. i cannot emphasize this enough. either bioengineered for us to consume and they are in agony right now. >> and at the end it would say going -- it would say gobble, bob ge
never been enforced. >> and neither is the obama administration. >> nobody raised their hand. that it has to be to the sole benefit of the intern not the immediate benefit of the employer. aside from dell law what is wrong? it is a win-win. >> in many ways. but some say it is great instead of taking on the young people. john: it would day replace the paid work? >> a few weeks ago i interviewed workplace correspondence from eight coulda college in new york and got a job at the most famous fashion house. nine a.m. through 9:00 p.m. not paid at all. weekends, sometimes she got their lunch. john: she can quit. >> that is true. that we believe companies should follow the rules. >> then they should lobby the labor department to chan the rule. john: you help students find internships? >> absolutely. we put them in organizations and i cann say enough the advantage is paid or unpaid day have incredible opportunities what they want to do with their life. networking. a young professional. john: he says it hurts the paid workers. >> how is that possible? maybe it is not what the full tim
-seller the amateur on the obama administration this is as if the obama team did not -- it just knew exactly wat would unfold. that is how together they were >> i'll understand that. the cost per ad, the republicans have to pay, many times more than the democrats. they bought there rate and they bought them in a very inefficient way. the whole campaign was just shot through with inefficiency. lou: de think it will be as easy for the republicans to raise money next time? >> people talking about, is there a silver lining for the republican. no doubt there are a lot of attractive potential candidates. you can go on and on. the question is, the base which controls the primary situation, will they go for any of these people, these populist conservatives overvalue conservatives. lou: let me pose another. i was talking with someone who i will not name. basically the republican party has a strange feeling of being in the buzz around and tells a political party. >> we need to get back to basics. a party of great principle. you can be a member of the republican party and believe 99 percent of what the platform
petraeus told congressional panels in closed sessions that someone in the obama administration removed references to terrorism and al qaeda from his agency summary before it went to rice. a source told us the edits were made by the office of the director of national intelligence. republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham have led the call for a special committee to investigate. >> i was on "face the nation" the morning she came on and told that incredible story, and right after it, the president of the libyan national assembly said it was al qaeda. we know it was al qaeda. and yet she never changed her story. >> reporter: rice also shot back against mccain's criticisms. >> i do think that some of the statements he's made about me have been unfounded. but i look forward to having the opportunity at the appropriate time to discuss all of this with him. >> reporter: now, after rice spoke last night, several republicans told us they want to ask the administration what evidence they had when they originally said the benghazi attacks started with a spontaneous mob inspired by an ant
government is trying to protect an owl from extinction by giving it nine million acre. the obama administration said it is it critical for the spotted owl's survival. do you feel like your younger siblings drive up your blood pressure. there could be a approximately reason for that. >> you said tell you to clean up? >> said they can burden older ones with responsibility and that raises blood pressure up to six percent. younger boys bother older brothers the most . this is it a study in human biology. >> it is it black friday and start of the huge holiday shopping season and we are here and every friday from now to christmas. we'll bring you fox and friends holiday wish list. and the best list whether it is the lady or man we'll kick it off with the tech. michael manna is here to will help us out. >> you're welcome. we'll start with this. this is awesome. you have to watch and learn about what is this. >> this is a big jam box. you will have to listen to this. it sounds amazing and don't put tup too loud. >> we want to hear you, right. >> besides just playing music. you can take p
place. >> reporter: america is poised to help both sides. the obama administration says it will ask congress to increase funding for israel's defense system that helped intercept 80% of hamas rockets. and american tax dollars also provide assistance to the u.n. organizations that support the palestinians. with egypt as mediator, both sides are trying to negotiate a more permanent agreement. israel wants to end weapons smuggling at the gaza. hamas wants to end a five-year border blockade. >>> thanksgiving warning turned into a nightmare for hundreds of people caught up in a major pileup in texas. more than 140 cars and trucks lay twisted and broken. the huge crash happened as holiday travelers tried to navigate through dense fog. drivers could do little to get out of the way. >> i just grabbed my kids, pulled them out of the car and ran. that's all i could do. >> at least two people died and more than 80 were hurt, several critically. and rescue crews credit many drivers for helping each others while first responders were overwhelmed. >>> police in berkeley are hoping you can help sm
the obama administration praised morsi for his help in brokering a cease-fire between israel and hamas and 18 people injured after a gas fueled explosion ripped through a building in western massachusetts. this is now what's left. new video from right after the fire showing piles and piles of debris we're told the building was a strip club and nearby homes and businesses were damaged. and the witnesses say the explosion felt like a bomb had gone off. i'm heather childress, and now back to bulls and bears, and for the latest headlines, log on to foxnews.com. >> leave us alone, as the fiscal cliff nears a group representing more than two dozen federal employee unions telling congress not to touch their pay and benefits when it comes to any debt deal they say, quote, no other group has been asked to financially contribute the way they have. gary b, you say what? >> yeah, i don't understand that, brenda. from two perspectives, one, in life for like jobs, including the benefits and wages, government employees make out a lot better than their counterparts in the private sector, number one, d
. that permission was revoked by the obama administration even that was granted by the bush administration previously. everybody wants to get sources of energy in their states for not only to be able to get the jobs of getting it out, but attract criminal and manufacturing companies with low prices. so this is the choice we will have before us and to meet sees clearly the the way to go. i'd like to thank all of you for listening and i'd be very happy to take any questions. [applause] >> thanks, dana. if i could just start off with one question. among the natural gas reserves are natural gas reserves in the state, upstate new york. if by some fluke you had governor cuomo regarding potential for hater fracturing in the decision he is facing, what might you say to him? >> i would certainly say to look at the example of pennsylvania, which has created many, many jobs and is doing well and that job and they have an experienced environmental problems. it seems obvious that haida refracting is the way to go and governor cuomo is free to set whatever regulations he wants around that to ensure the
balancing act for the obama administration because, of course, the united states must support the continuation of democracy especially in egypt which is the heart of the arab world. and so i think you'll see some criticism by the state department and white house where president morsi has announced but on the other hand you saw last week how important morsi was in putting together the cease-fire between israel and hamas. he will be important on issues like iran, on countering terrorism. he now is one of the dominant figures in the middle east. so the administration doesn't want to alienate him but i do think they have to speak truth to power. and there will be criticism both from the united states and many other countries about this worrisome sign of possible return to authoritarianism in egypt. >> glor: nicholas burns, thank you. palestinian authority president abbas spoke to his supporters on the eve of his departure to the united nation where he will argue that plan should be upgraded to an observer state. abbas's predecessor yasser arafat died eight years ago. some still su

ehud barack abruptly quit politics today, saying he'll only finish out his term. the obama administration had embraced him as a moderate influence on benjamin netanyahu's hard-line policies. meanwhile, a leader of hamas is warning that a fragile ceasefire in gaza could flare back into violence if negotiators don't come to agreement quickly. negotiations have to proceed through egyptian messagers because israel and the united states consider hamas a terrorist organization. >>> still ahead here at 5:00, it's a distinction that universities don't want. the bay area school, though, near the top of this dubious list. >>> and a blockbuster acquisition that never was. google tied to a takeover deal the company is now calling a hoax. >>> and a celebration filled with secret information. how sensitive information might have been leaked in the macy's thanksgiving day parade. >>> and good afternoon. i'm jeff ranieri in the nbc bay area weather center. already a cool night on tap with temperatures in the mid- to upper 50s from san francisco to napa, and santa rosa also about 59. and ge
, the u.s. economy would suffer big time. the obama administration's economists estimate consumers would spend about $200 billion less next year than they would have otherwise. congress and the administration have only a few more weeks to nail down a deal. but that deal will have to address some tough issues, including entitlement reform. darren gersh explains. >> reporter: the big money in entitlements is in health care, and that means any grand bargain to avoid the fiscal cliff will slice away aone of the nation's most popular programs. >> medicare is clearly in the gunsights. >> reporter: it's possible congress and the president could agree to save $300 to $400 billion from medicare by cutting fees for doctors and hospitals. but analysts worry slashing payments won't make the health care system more efficient. >> this is not really a way to structurally change medicare and if you don't change the underlying incentives, you don't get long-term savings. >> reporter: progressives at the center for american progress say the government could save close to $150 billion by squeezing the pric
of action out of the obama administration. she can bring that to the fore, and get some stuff done. >> i don't know how he's a champion citing ben affleck. [ laughter ] >> minus three points, exactly. talk to me about chuck hagel. >> first we have to start with susan rice. if she can handle the united nations, maybe she can handle the united states states senate. she does go hard left. that's exactly why the republicans fear her. she is still my first choice. i would pick tim romer or dick lugar. you've got bipartisan ship, somebody a lot of people could work with, including then senator obama who traveled around the world with him talking about nuclear disarmament. i think that is someone the president is comfortable with and the senators will be comfortable with. i think that's very important if we're going to retake the center. if you can't get susan right one of the hoosiers. >> one of the hoosiers wins. every fantasy draft every cabinet fantasy draft is talking about the hoosier twins. i say james cunningham, the ambassador to iraq, was to israel. james cunningham. susan rice, from fant
in bengha benghazi. this as a cnn/orc new poll shows the obama administration's overall response to that attack does not get high marks. 54% of americans say they are dissatisfied with how the attack was handled. foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty is at the state department this morning. >> hey, christine. the bottom line, as i look through this poll, i think it says americans do not see a cover-up. that's the one thing. but there is a lot of confusion in this poll, i think, in terms of what americans think, you know, happened, didn't happen, don't forget this has been -- it is confusing. and, it has been highly politicized. so when you look at some of the parts of this poll, for example, you know, thinking it could have been prevented, 48%. 42% think it could not have been prevented. and it's very hard, i think, for americans, to figure that out. who knows unless you have the intelligence information, and all of that has not come out yet. the other thing, though, is that americans are really split. 44-44 over how the administration handled it. you know, did they handle
american notes than the previous egyptian dictatorship. that is a real problem for the obama administration. i don't know how you can go any other way. they have not been critical of a country where a guy is a member of the a cultish theo kratic multi fascist organization that has power ore his country. they refuse to be critical because he helped with a temporary cease fire and a fight between hamas and israel. >> morsi had plans for a protest in the square. >>> actor angus p. jones doesn't want to be on 2 and a half men any more. the 19-year-old star trashed the show in new video. >> if you watch 2 and a half men please stop watching two and a half men. i am on two and a half men i don't want to be on it. please stop watching it. please stop filling your head with filth. >> i am not okay with what i am learning what the bible says and being on that television show. >> jones says he turned to religion after a battle with drugs. >> boy meets world stars ben savage and daniel signed on to join the sequel to the hit 90s sitcom. the new show will be called girl meets world and revolves around
that the benghazi attack was spontaneous violence. the obama administration later said it was a terrorist attack. rice heads to capitol hill today to meet with three of her harshest critics senators john mccain, lindsay graham and kelly ayotte. mccain now willing to hear her side of the story. >> i will be glad to meet with her and listen to her positions and justification for her comments but i'm -- i'm very unhappy with her performance. >> reporter: graham is also looking forward to hearing from rice. >> there will be a lot of questions asked of her about this event and others. >> reporter: ayotte told cnn that rice's staff contacted her about the meeting. she believes it will focus on rice's, quote, representations of what happened at benghazi. rice is considered a top pick to replace secretary of state hillary clinton who said she will leave her post when a replacement is found. mccain, graham and ayotte all said they would block any effort to advance rice if she is nominated. i'm ed payne, reporting. >> later this week rice will meet with acting cia director mike morrell as well as senator
relationship. what side is the obama administration taking in this crisis? >> reporter: well, u.s. criticism so far has been extremely muted. some people here in egypt are disappointed by that. the u.s. government is really in a tricky situation because it's relying on president morsi to help with peace efforts in the israeli-palestinian conflict. last week he helped broker a truce between hamas and israel. so we're back in the same situation we had under the old dictatorship which is that the u.s. can't be to overtly critical because it relies on egypt's help here in the middle east. >> holly williams in cairo for us this morning. thank you so much. let's take a quick break. when we come back the latest on the civil war in syria including a report from one city at the center of the conflict. later, would be millionaires line up for a chance at tonight's historic powerball lottery drawing. this is the "cbs morning news." powerball lottery drawing. this is the "cbs morning news." or visit exelonpatchoffer2.com. cool, you found it. wow. nice place. yeah.

will be america's next secretary of state. >>> the obama administration is reportedly weighing its options on what sort of force -- wouldn't your dad be proud of you? >> yeah. i think he'd find that to be deserving. >> i think he might spit his coffee up all over himself. anyway, trying to figure out what type of force the u.s. military's going to leave in afghanistan after 2014. now, according to "the new york times," options range from a small counterterrorism unit to more than 10,000 americans and nato troops. there are also some ongoing discussions over how quickly that drawdown of those 66,000 troops still in the war zone are going to be. the talks factor in recommendations of commanders on the ground, many of whom favor a substantial force through next year's fighting season. that may be at odds with some of the white house, which "the new york times" says are describing as "very war weary." you know, mika, when you consider that every one of those troops out there have to worry about their afghan, quote, allies turning guns on them at any moment and shooting them, you know, they're not the
your headline, are we getting dunked? we're focussed on it. we have been working with the obama administration on trying to get the rules amended i think we will in terms -- >> do they show any willingness to do that? >> we've had a lot of success, one part of the affordable health care act that many do not know is about menu labeling. and this is about calorie legislation, here in new york we have legislation bought in by new york city, and other jurisdictions. neil: how do you feel about that in we need one set of rules, biggest difficulty for franchisees is different jurisdictions spelling out what appropriate for menu labeling. we have it in affordable health care act that will give us one system throughout the country, that will save a lot of regulation. neil: but still require, public calorie count of everything you are okay with that. >> we're fine with that. neil: are there any other people shocked when they go in and say vanillaa cream has 8,000-calories. >> sometimes there is a short-term negative affect, but it lasts, based on our experience a very sport time, we have

interesting, revealing exactly what we had feared was going on inside the obama administration. first, let's start with his framing of the issue. >> democrats are also going to have to step up here and do some tough things, and the notion that somehow these deficits and our debt are not a threat to our national security and economic future is something i could not disagree with more strongly. there are some commentators on the left that suggest that. >> cenk: it's threat to national security. look, i want to balance the budget, right, but it's not a threat to national security. if oh, my god what if the interest rates go up, but they're at record lows. this is just fear mongering. it's republican talking points. and then second of all you're setting up a straw man. nobody's saying don't balance the budget. the question is how how do you balance it? they always send out a straw man, oh, well, see that commentators on the left don't want to compromise. they do want to. the question is what's in the compromise. the if you notice, the most important thing he said there they're going to have to
to the u.s. in a somewhat perplexed fashion. .. >> i'll give real credit to the obama administration. they been very good on investment. president obama was the first democrat in 30 years without an open investments. why? because foreign direct investment to the u.s. creates jobs that are disproportionately export oriented, disproportionately manufacturing oriented, and our 50% more likely to be unionized. this is capital we should be fighting for. i think we need to approach in the second obama term with the second -- same degree with confidence going to the point michael me. i think the world agree to engage with us. angela merkel proposed the free trade agreement in her speech issue. i think we should pick up on that and go for it. there's a trans-pacific partnership being negotiated out in asia, chinese are not part of the negotiation but they follow it very, very closely. let's just proceed with confidence because i think people want us to. >> you mentioned china, thank goodness. can't have a discussion with out china. jonathan and i were in china this year. everywhere we went j

rice failed to do something. and this is where the obama administration has leaved himself exposed. he never went to israel. i think now is probably not the time to get involved there but i think he's going to have to, in the second term, especially if these incidents show, they're going to try to do some middle east peace deal again. >> yeah, i mean you know, in addition to all of this which is a much more local conversation, we need to think in a broader sense. there's no big international moral voice on this question and i think until we have that kind of unquestionable, moral voice with an honest broker as well as a spiritual dimension this isn't going to get resolved by different types of policies. the record is clear. >> tim mak i want to ask you does the president see this as an opportunity to be the moral voice that tricia rose just talked to? >> if he does see the opportunity, he isn't really seizing on it. you haven't really seen him going out-front on the issue. you do see him giving speeches. you se

. martha: china apparently is not a current see manipulator, that according to the obama administration. you remember mitt romney said he would declare them immediately if he became president. they do a report twice a year on whether the countries are manipulating their currency to try to gain trade advantages. a lot of people feel china is doing that. despite the decision not to declare them as such, the administration says the chinese yen remains significantly under valued 16-cents to every u.s. dollar. that makes it a lot easier to buy our goods. bill: three minutes past the hour now. republicans sent to introduce their own version of the d.r.e.a.m. act called the aeu grieve act. achieve act. it would provide legal status for hundreds of undocumented aliens. republicans are serious about coughing this issue. >> we have to get this ball rolling. we have to have a discussion that is sensible, calm, that discusses all of the different aspects of the issue and this particular part of immigration reform seemed a logical place to begin. >> steve centanni is live in washington on this. stev
responsible for brokering the deal. i give actually the obama administration a lot more of the responsibility. i wouldn't call it credit for pressuring both israel and the egypt to get hamas to agree to the cease-fire. it is a very limited cease-fire. it won't last. it doesn't change the strategic environment and it clearly gave morsi the view that he would have a free hand domesticly to do what he has just done. melissa: i don't want to let you go without asking you i was struck by pictures exhuming yasser arafat questioning what he did of. what do you think of that? >> i don't think he died of polonium poisoning. only people that used that is soviets. i don't think they killed arafat. i think this is way pinning his death on somebody else. as happens in that part of the world it is not their responsibility but somebody else's. melissa: why now? >> an issue kicking around for quite some time i think circumstances led to it being this time. i don't attribute to any grander plan. i don't think it will fundamentally change the circumstance there is. melissa: ambassador, thanks for coming on. we

's role is so important. after four years of basically neglecting the peace process, the obama administration now has in some ways an opportunity to move in and create not just a sense of calm or temporary cease-fire but actually to take the first steps in dealing with israel's security as well as the issue of the blockade of gaza. if she can move through phase one in the cease-fire, phase two, then deal with those immediate concerns, that then opens the way for what everyone is expected since ironically her husband got close to a peace agreement 12 years ago in camp david. everyone knows what the ultimate formula is going to be. this is a moment where the situation begs for a bigger solution than just another temporary cease-fire that opens the way as alan dershowitz says for something four years down the road. >> let's hold that thought. let's have a quick break, come back and talk about the big picture solution. hi, could you read my list? it's all crossed out... it's 'cause i got everything on it. boom! thank you!
